What started as a hobby some fifty years ago, developed into a passion to create a masterpiece from a piece of wood. Michelangelo said, “in every block of marble there is an angel waiting to be set free”.
In an attempt to emulate, I did a lot of reading, attended workshops locally and overseas. Studied and developed an appreciation for trees and wood.
In between I also qualified as a Chartered Accountant to earn my daily bread and keep a family together.
I am a member of the Association of Woodturners (S.A), the Western Cape Association as well as the American Association.
I believe that every piece I turn is unique to its maker!
